These include: -

  • World Scouting program awards - Better World Framework
  • Recognition of achievements in certain non-Scouting activities
  • Special activity-related badges specified by Scouts Australia 

While these badges can be earnt on a stand alone basis, they can also be combined with other areas of the Achievement Pathways such as Challenge Areas and Special Interest Areas.

World Scout Environment Badge

World Scout Environment Badge

The World Scout Environment Badge encourages Scouts to connect with nature, think about how we interact with the environment and take action to protect it.
